tv: wolverine and the x men


[X-23] was originally created by writer Craig Kyle for the X-Men: Evolution television series before debuting in the NYX comic series in 2004. […] The characterization went for the opposite of Wolverine, where instead of a man “older than we know” with no memory of his past and the life that he lost, X-23 was a young girl “shackled to the murders she’s committed” whose entire life revolved around the project that made her a killer. Kyle added that the character is “Pinocchio for Marvel Comics, she’s a samurai sword trying to become a real little girl.”

“Laura saw you two making-out...” - Old Man Logan x Reader

#6. Getting caught making out with Logan for @jobean12-blog.

At first I started to write a story with “normal” Logan, but then…Well I got inspired by (film) Old Man Logan and Laura, so…yeah. Though it didn’t turn out how I initially thought it would, it turned out more…serious than funny, but like, with a movie like Logan as an original material…you know ^^’. . Hope you’ll still like it and will be ok with the Old Man Logan blahblahblah :

(My masterlist blog here :


You couldn’t even recall the last time you had a moment like this…Was it over a year ago ? Before Charles lost control of his power and destroyed everything he ever build ? Before all your friends died ? Before you, Logan and the professor had to run away from the X-Mansion and hide because of what happened ? Right before you called Caliban for help maybe ?

You couldn’t remember. But it was hell of a long time ago.

Yes, Logan and you hadn’t had a moment of intimacy like that in ages…

Ever since the Xavier’s school incident.

This was so refreshing. So nice.

Feeling his tongue in your mouth, his body flushed against yours, his hands roaming your body, his smile in the kiss as your grip tightened around him.

It almost felt like old times. When things were easier. When things weren’t so complicated. When it was just you and your loved ones, living an almost normal life in the mansion, saving the World on a regular basis…

But this time was long gone, and you definitely cherished that fleeting moment you had right now with your Wolverine.


It wasn’t really meant to happen. It kinda just did. Which made it even greater than  it would be if it was planned.

Since you had to run away from the X-Mansion over a year ago, you and Logan rarely had time for yourselves.

He was working really late everyday, and when he came home, was too tired to do anything else but sleep. And you had quite busy days too, working your ass off as well to be able to buy the sun seeker one day, and leave this godforsaken place.

It’s a shame that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is one of the worst superhero films ever made, because it also contains one of the best superhero films never made: right there during the opening credits. 

 In the first couple minutes of Origins, we’re treated to a montage of Wolverine and Sabretooth fighting alongside one another through a series of battles plucked straight out of your 10th grade history class. They survive an infantry charge during the American Civil War, a nighttime raid on German trenches during WWI, Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasion, and even their own execution during the Vietnam War.

Screw a two-hour movie – that’s an amazing TV series. Wolverine and Sabretooth, surly, stubbled, almost literally grizzly immortal soldiers bantering their way through every war in history – and also claw-mauling Nazis. Plus, for long-term drama: Comic book readers know these literal brothers in arms eventually become bitter enemies – imagine experiencing that heartbreak firsthand, after binge-watching several seasons of manly super-bonding. Instead, we got the worst possible version of Deadpool: One literally without a mouth. Whose brilliant idea was that? And how fucking fired are they? We hope it’s “a lot.”

Part 2

Here’s the conclusion to the Momstique Saga.  I’m not sure if I captured Rogue’s voice and personality right since I haven’t read a lot of comics with her yet and most of my knowledge of her comes from the XMCU, Wolverine and the X-Men TV series, and pop culture in general, but I felt it was important to bring her in to this storyline.  Big sis Rogue will protect her blue little brother from everything, even from her foster mother.  Several people including @babybells231 have asked if Rogue is a member of the KPS, and now she officially is!  Rogue’s appointment as the Captain of the KPS Mystique Special Task Force is also the result of this KPS comic.

Rogue is older than Kurt, right?  I’m not entirely sure?  She referred to him as a “little brother” in X-Men Evolution, but that doesn’t mean he’s younger in the comics ‘verse…

My comics are rapidly becoming their own X-Men universe with their own continuity.  Welp, hope y’all are keeping up okay, hahaha. ^^;;

Song I listened to while writing: “Same Old Same Old” by The Civil Wars

Warnings: Drinking, swearing, mention of bullet wound

Excerpt:  And maybe it’s the time, or the stress of the conversation, or the barely perceptible hum of pre-storm tension that’s been ever-present whenever the two of you are in the same room since that day in the diner, but suddenly, something is making you very aware of the older man in a way that you weren’t before. It’s something in the air. Something in the air has changed, gotten thicker or stronger or more pressing, but somehow you can feel it, and you get the feeling that somehow—somehow—Logan can, too.

My prediction for what happened to the X-Men and Brotherhood goes somewhat like this...

-Xavier and Beast are searching for Magneto somewhere in another country.

-Kurt is laying low in a church, possibly.

-Raven’s already impersonating someone in a position of authority

-Jean is either dead, or she and Scott are in hiding together.

-Ororo is definitely not in Wakanda because Movie/TV rights.

-Victor is likely hiding and/or working low-key as a hired gun/assassin/mercenary of some kind.

-Wolverine? Probably growing out his sideburns and being dragged into an adventure with Kitty Pryde.

-Iceman? At your local convenience store hiding in the freezer.

-Angel? Probs hiding out w/Psylocke.

-And finally, he’s sorta not an X-Man but I’m guessing Deadpool is, being Deadpool.

Recently news has been popping up that Disney is in meetings with 20th Century Fox about buying everything from the company that isn’t sports or news related. It’s obvious the main reason Disney is considering this is so they can get the film rights for X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool as well as the complete rights to Star Wars episodes 1-6. Though this would also mean they would get the rights to Fox made animations such as all of the Blue Sky movies and their TV cartoons including The Simpsons.

With news this bizarre I couldn’t resist making a short comic about it. Though a few news sites are stating that the talks are already over and this isn’t gonna happen, so this comic might already be out of date. Then again there are some articles saying that the more talks could still happen so you never quite know.

Also this marks the first time I’ve drawn Wolverine, Mr. Fantastic, and Deadpool.

Who is X-23?

Laura Kinney, also known as X-23 (or Talon, a long time ago) is a member of the X-Men. She’s a genetic clone of Wolverine, and her codename stems from what the Facility who created her called her. She was their 23rd attempt at cloning Wolverine. She naturally has similar powers to Logan, including a healing factor, superhuman strength and senses, and bone claws. Like Wolverine, her claws have been coated in adamantium. But unlike him, she does not have adamantium throughout her whole body, only her claws. And she only has 2 on each hand, but she has 1 claw in each foot.

The evil people at the Facility raised her as an assassin. She’s killed all over the world (examples: 1, 2). There’s a trigger scent that the Facility who created her used to force her into a berserk killing frenzy, and made her kill her surrogate mother with it (pictured here, they’re really sad pages though 1, 2).

Laura may have been forced to be a killer when she was a child, but she’s actually not a bad person. She’s very selfless and wants to help others (though that selflessness is in part due to not even caring much for her own well-being). Like above, where she’s willing to sacrifice herself so that Sue Storm can have her daughter Valeria back. Laura is still very willing to kill the bad guys though (1, 2). She’s been through a lot over the years, and has gone through some great character development. 

Some of X-23′s relationships include a kinda father/daughter relationship with Wolverine,  friendship with Gambit, Dust (Sooraya Qadir), and Jubilee

Laura is a special character, because her first appearance wasn’t in the comics. She debuted in the early 2000′s cartoon X-Men: Evolution (pictured above). Also, her and her mom’s skin tones were considerably darker in that show compared to her very white appearance when put into the comics, she used to be a bit brown. X-23 was also a great playable character in the videogame Marvel vs Capcom 3, voiced by the famous Tara Strong

EDIT: This was originally written in 2015. More recently, X-23 had a huge role in the 2017 Wolverine movie, Logan

Fun Fact: When she attended school with her cousin for a little while, she was taught by the two guys (Jamie and Adam) from that Mythbusters TV show, no lie. (1, 2)

X-23 has grown a lot since she was first introduced, and is a really great character. One of my favorite mutants. You can check out my Laura Kinney tag if you’re interested in seeing more of her. Or my Who Is That Character tag for more write-ups on Marvel superheroines.


DISCLAIMER: I haven;’t found any of these easter eggs on my own, I did a bit of research and gathered the many easter eggs I found from multiple sites. I know there are definitely more easter eggs that I didn’t include because I either didn’t spot/know about them or didn’t think they were important enough. If you noticed that I missed an easter egg that you would like me to include, please feel free to tell me and I’d gladly add it! I also apologize that this list isn’t as long as my other easter egg posts, it’s just been a hectic few days and I haven’t had much time to do more research. Also please let me know if i made any mistakes.


Rictor, the leader of the children from the X-23 program, had the power to move rocks and earth with his mind. When Logan looked over Rictor’s file, Dominikos Patrakis was listed as his DNA source. That name is the alter ego of the classic villain, Avalanche.


Logan referred to Transigen by another name - Alkali. Alkali Lake was the location of the original Weapon X Program, and that same company is the one that eventually became Transigen. The carryover is the reason the company had Logan’s DNA in the first place.


The fourth song on the soundtrack is titled ‘Old Man Logan’. The 'Old Man Logan’ storyline from the comics was the original source for Logan’s story.


At the beginning of the movie, when Logan picks some people up at the funeral at Greenwood Cemetery, which has been used throughout Marvel comics. Captain America’s memorial is in Greenwood in the Ultimates storyline, and Sue Storm was buried there after her death. There are also the names “Rogers” and “Peters” on tombstones, which are references to Captain America and Quicksilver. 


We’ve already seen the character of Caliban in X-Men: Apocalypse! When asked about it, James Mangold said “It’s a funny, messy story of how so often these things are not as coordinated as everyone thinks,” director James Mangold told us at a recent press event for 20th Century Fox. “I actually had written him into our movie, and they didn’t know [he was] in Apocalypse, and then they kind of wrote it in their movie, and they cast someone in their movie and I had not seen it and was working away on mine.” So it was just a big coincidence! Stephen Merchant plays Caliban in Logan, and Tómas Lemarquis plays him in Apocalypse. 


At the end of the movie, the children decided to shave of a part of Logan’s beard, which resulted in him having his classic Wolverine mutton chop look.


In the movie we see that Logan has a samurai sword (katana), which is a callback The Wolverine and Logan’s many other adventures in Japan.


There were many many callbacks to the previous X-Men movies in the dialogue of this movie such as Professor X talking about discovering Logan as a cage fighter, Logan still smoking cigars, the battle at the Statue of Liberty, and Adamantium bullets.


Charles’ round home thing is sort of the exact opposite of Cerebro. Its inside mirror the inside of Cerebro, but it acts as a method of surprising his telekinesis.


Another mutant whose DNA samples were used for the clones was Christopher Bradley, a.k.a. Bolt/Maverick, and we do see a kid who has electricity powers! We last saw Christopher Bradley/Bolt/Maverick in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but due to the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, none of the events in X-Men Origins: Wolverine happened (not going to even try explaining the timeline, I don’t even get it completely). (Anyone else recognize the actor, Dominic Monaghan, as Merry from LOTR?)


James Mangold has said that he views Logan to be sort of a Western movie and he was inspired by the 1953 movie Shane, which follows an aging, reluctant hero attempting to escape his old life only to be dragged back in, which is a clear parallel to Wolverine’s storyline in this movie. We even see Professor X & Laura watching the movie in the hotel room!


Sadly, Hugh Jackman is done with the Wolverine role, and we never got to see him wear the classic yellow Wolverine costume from the comics (I’m not too upset about him not wearing the costume, in my opinion he looks cooler without it). Anyways, in addition to seeing it in Laura’s comicbook, we see one of the mutant kids holding a doll wearing the classic Wolverine suit.


By now we’ve all seen he teaser trailer for Deadpool 2, and this short little teaser is filled with easter eggs itself!

  • While Deadpool is in the phone booth, the words “Nathan Summers Coming Soon” are written on the frame. Nathan Summers is the real name of the character Cable, who is going to be in the Deadpool sequel.
  • In addition to the very obvious Logan posters in the background, there’s also a Firefly poster. Firefly is a tv show created by Joss Wheadon, who also directed The Avengers (note: Deadpool & Logan & the rest of the X-Men universe movies don’t take place in the same universe as The Avengers, aka the MCU) Anyways, some fans have theorized that the Firefly poster could be a hint that we could see Nathan Fillion in Deadpool 2. 
  • UPDATE: The Firefly poster could also be a reference to Morena Baccarin - she plays Inara in Firefly and was Vanessa in Deadpool (she will reprise her role in the sequel). 
  • The huge chunk of text at the end of the trailer is an actual book report for The Old Man and the Sea. I don’t know the connection or why it was done (I’m presuming it’s just a joke) but if anyone knows, feel free to let me know and I’ll update this post.
